✨✧ La DusseldorfViva (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Teldec/4 Men With Beards, 1978. Near Mint- (reissue)... $12.99
A bit of a shift for La Dusseldorf, but a good one too – and a record that has the group reaching even more towards some of the punkish directions initially inspired by their music! The sound's less stretched-out than before – shorter tunes, often with a bit more force, especially on the vocals – but the overall approach is still heavy on the driving drums we love from La Dusseldorf – played live, with a very human feel, but with a forward-moving feel that's clearly an inspiration for later drum machine styles. The group produced this record themselves, so the sound's a bit different than their work with Conny Plank – and they layer in electronics and experimental bits in just the right way – creating complicated textures of sound that must have been mindblowing for the late 70s scene. Titles include "Viva", "Cha Cha 2000", "Geld", "Vogel", "Rheinita", and "White Overalls". LP, Vinyl record album

MorrisseyBona Drag (2LP anniversary edition – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Sire/Reprise, 1990. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $31.99 34.98
A seminal solo set from Morrissey – one that brings together all the singles and EP tracks he issued in the last few years of the 80s – when he moved away from the solid album format of Viva Hate, and just let his ideas hit the market as they came to him! That approach was a bit like that of The Smiths – who sometimes meant more to the world in their progression of singles than albums – but it was also frustrating to fans in the digital age, especially Americans, who had less access to singles in that format – hence the need for this full length set, which turned out to be one of the strongest full statements by the singer after stepping out on his own. Titles include "Piccadilly Palare", "Interesting Drug", "November Spawned A Monster", "Ouija Board Ouija Board", "Everyday Is Like Sunday", "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys", and "Suedehead". 2LP pressing features the bonus tracks and improved mastering of the 2010 20th Anniversary edition!

Creedence Clearwater RevivalWilly & The Poor Boys ... LP
Fantasy, 1969. Very Good ... $18.99
It's hard to get any more classic than this for Creedence Clearwater Revival – as this legendary late 60s album is definitely the place where it all comes together! The pairing of John Fogerty's lead guitar and the scratching rhythm guitar of brother Tom really sounds wonderful here – driven on by tight bass and drums, but always with this rootsy edge that stretches from the Bay Area scene way down to the bayou! Titles include the classic "Down On The Corner" and a great version of "The Midnight Special" – plus "It Came Out Of The Sky", "Side Of The Road", "Effigy", "Don't Look Now", and "Fortunate Son".

Dandelion SetThousand Strands – 1975 to 2015 ... CD
Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, and some of the trippier psych revival sounds of the following decade! These guys might have been right at home on Bam Caruso or early Creation Records – and share a similar love of the weirder, offbeat qualities of the late 60s – blending fuzzy performance with equally freaky production – using light touches of funk or analogue electronics along the way. Tracks on the record work together to create a very vivid audio scene – one that's echoed by the equally trippy liner notes by Alan Moore – and titles include "Harps Ascend", "Cosmic Flux History", "Tone Garden", "Pristina Strawberry Girl", "Redherringbone", "A Rasher Of Wind", "Gardense", and "The Third Programme".

✨✧ DinAuthenticity (includes bonus CD) ... LP
Din Jam, 2013. Sealed ... $9.99
The long-overdue return of Din – a group missing from this planet for a quarter of a century – recently reformed and revived from the ashes of their California roots! The record's got a relatively vintage feel – from the cloud-swirling production on the guitars, to the sense of static and crackle on the vocals, to the lavish Independent Projects packaging of the limited vinyl-only release – but it's also clear that these guys have a lot more to offer than "din", and have really honed their craft over the years. Tunes are well-penned, with a sense of the old mixed with optimism of their revival – on titles that include "Winning", "Never Again", "Going Down", "Words From Jack", "Voodoo Hotel", and "If". LP, Vinyl record album

Bonnie DobsonGood Morning Rain ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A sweet folk pop set from Bonnie Dobson – recorded at the famous Nashville Sound Studio in Nashville, and eking out every bit of warmth it could provide, most likely in spite of RCA's intent to polish her up for mass consumption! There's a bright and buzzing sound on a number of tunes that caught us off guard – uptempo and fuzzy little groovers that have more of a rockin' lilt – which may have alienated fans of the folk revival stuff she spun, but it sounds groovy to our ears. Really nice stuff! Title include Bonnie's own tunes "Sweet Man" and "You Don't Love" – plus "Light Of Love", "You Don't Know", "Clown", "Do What You Gotta Do", "Factory Girl", "Streets Of London", "A Taste Of Honey" and more.

Julie FelixClotho's Web (plus bonus singles) ... LP
RAK, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $5.99
A pretty wild mix of airy acoustic folk and some surprisingly rockish touches from Julie Felix – the 1972 album Clotho's Web recorded with producer Mickie Most for RAK Records – which mixes some rockish elements of electric bass and heavy drums in spots, without taking away the acoustic folk revivalist touches. Julie's voice is versatile, and conveys moods masterfully, and the sound is a pretty sweet mix of pop and rock ready moods with more traditional elements. Titles include "Clotho's Web", "Windy Morning", "Fire Water Earth & Air", "Clickety Clack", "Hills Of May", "Moonlight", "Happiness", "The Lean Years", "Summer Of Fire" and "Lady".

The second album from the Holy Modal Rounders – with the more traditional folk material on one side, and the Holy Modal Rounders inspired blend of strangeness and oddball charm on the other – and inspired mix of reverent folk duo revivalism, and strangely fun spins on the styles with their own 60s twists. Titles include "Flop Eared Mule", "Black Eyed Susie", "Sail Away Ladies", "Junko Partner", "Mole In The Ground", "Hot Corn, Cold Corn", "Chevrolet Six", "Crowley Waltz", "Bully Of The Town" and more.

Iggy & The StoogesMove Ass Baby ... CD
Lemon (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Original demos and rehearsal tapes from the mighty Stooges – early 70s ragged brutality that would form the seeds of the coming Raw Power album! The Olympic Studios demos range from full on garage rock onslaught's prefiguring both punk and the uber raw garage rock revival sounds of myriad bands, and others that have a junkie r&b sound. The rehearsal footage is naturally even more raw, and varied in approach, actually almost approaching convential rock in spots. Titles include "I Got A Right", "Gimme Some Skin", "I'm Sick Of You", "Scene Of The Crime", "Wild Love", "I Come From Nowhere", "Move Ass Baby" and more. CD

PrisonersThewisermiserdemelza (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $9.99
Wonderful sounds from The Prisoners – an ultra-hip UK combo from the early 80s, and one who never fully got their due – although their keyboardist James Taylor later rose to great fame in the funk, soul, and acid jazz scenes! The Prisoners are a bit of a mod revival group, but have also gotten a lot more psych-oriented by this time in their career – at a level that really prefaces work to come from the Creation Records scene – and which makes us wonder if The Prisoners would have rose with the fame of those groups, had they held on a few years longer! Taylor's organ lines tie together the raspy vocals, tight drums, and riffing guitars – which almost have a Jam-like tightness at times, but are looser and more trippy at others. Titles include "Go Go", "Hurricane", "Tonight", "Love Me Lies", "Far Away", "For Now & Forever", and "Here Come The Misunderstood". CD features 11 more bonus tracks added to the original album – including "Coming Home", "The Last Thing On Your Mind", "Reaching My Head", "Tomorrow", "Love Changes", "Revenge Of The Cybermen", and "What I Want".

SpiderLabyrinths ... CD
Capitol, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A very groovy group from the oft-overlooked early 70s years at Capitol Records – a time when the company was bringing some very interesting acts into the studio, which were often lost amidst their bigger hits of the time! Spider have a sound that's warmer and more personal than their name – this cool blend of roots rock with warmer harmonies – almost as if America were recording with more of a down-home vibe. The quartet has one female member, which expands the vocal approach nicely – and they also get help on the backings from lots of hip studio cats – including Rita Jean Bodine, King Errison, Vanetta Fields, Clydie King, and Alan Parker – in arrangements from Dee Barton and Jim Horn. Titles include "May 16th", "Pass It On", "Puppets", "Revival", "Burnin", "Southwind", and "Little Love Song". CD

Unit 4 + 2Concrete & Clay – The Complete Recordings ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
The complete recordings of Concrete & Clay – a British group of the 60s, but one that had a slightly different sound than some of their contemporaries! The initial years of the sextet has the group harmonizing in these warm ways that are a bit like some of the folk-revival groups in the American scene of the early 60s – especially given the way the voices take center stage above some often-light instrumentation. Yet as the group move on, they also pick up a bit more beat group elements – a bigger beat at the bottom, and more bite in their instrumentation – which is when they really seem to take off, and find a very special place to craft their amazing vocals! The approach is almost a combination of Sunshine Pop and Brit Invasion modes – served up here on a 43 track set that features all of the group's recordings from 1964 through 1969. Titles include "Concrete & Clay", "500 Miles", "Rainy Day", "Baby Never Say Goodbye", "I've Seen The Light", "I Was Playing Games", "So You Want To Be A Blues Player", "3.30", "Face In My Head", "Wild Is The Wind", "Woman From Liberia", "Sorrow & Pain", "Hark", and "I Won't Let You Down".

Paul WellerStudio 150 ... CD
V2, 2004. Used ... $2.99
Paul Weller returns to a major label (a return in the US, anyway) with a set of covers – featuring the husky-voiced Weller in fine form on a far-reaching set of tracks! We're consistently impressed with Paul's solo albums, particularly 2003's sadly under appreciated (in the US, anyway) gem Illumination, so it was a bit of a downer to hear that his return to the big leagues on this side of the pond is a covers album – but it's actually a worthy endeavor! It's mostly done in Paul's stripped-down soul revival mode, reigning in some pretty disparate source material to the style. Tracks include "If I Could Only Be Sure", "Wishing On A Star", "Don't Make Promises", "Close To You", "Early Morning Rain", "Hercules", "All Along The Watchtower" and more. CD

VariousAnother Splash Of Colour – New Psychedelia In Britain 1980 to 1985 (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $26.99
A really well-done set – one that brings together a very diverse se of tracks, along with a huge booklet of notes – all to focus on the surprising revival of psychedelic sounds in the UK during the early 80s! Unlike the psych revival in the US – which was mostly confined to the paisley underground of the period – the return of fuzz and freak really took a wide array of forms in England in the years after the initial rise of punk – from groups that returned to a core garagey style that was almost pre-psych, to others who maybe tripped out on solos even more than those in the past, to some who fused the best elements of the genre with more contemporary UK pop modes, and others who paved the way for the big Brit indie boom of the C86 years – sometimes even nudging the music surprisingly far in the charts! All those styles are here – and plenty more too – in a mighty nice box set that features 64 tracks in all – with titles that include "Keep Your Voice Down" by The Earwigs, "I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape" by The Times, "Slow Patience" by The Attractions, "Endless River" by The Brainaic Five, "Do I Have To Be Here" by The Way Out, "Sunspots" by Julian Cope, "Hilly Fields" by Nick Nicely, "Wivenhoe Bells II" by Cleaners From Venus, "Work" by Blue Orchids, "Night Of The Jackal" by Charlie Harper, "Pass Myself" by Third Eye, "Still Dreaming" by Marble Staircase, "A Day Out With Jeremy Chester" by Biff Bang Pow, "Where Are You" by The Primevals, and "Dancing In My Mind" by The High Tide.

VariousLadies Of Too Slow To Disco – More Late 70s West Coast Yachtpop You Can Almost Dance To ... CD
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
A great set of tracks that's billed as music "you can almost dance to" – and which hits this sweet midtempo groove throughout – filled with female vocals, and served up in a wicked soulful style of AOR! The collection's an excellent all-girl companion to the previous Too Slow To Disco sets – and may well be the best so far, as there's a current of soul that maybe didn't show up that strongly before – as the singers unabashedly go for deeper modes in some of their vocals, while the instrumental side of the tracks glow nicely with sweet keyboards, riffing guitars, and just the right touch of slightly funky rhythms! There's plenty of gems here we might have overlooked otherwise – definitely the best side of the "yacht rock" revival of the past few years – and tracks include "You Can Do It" by Evie Sands, "Be Here In The Morning" by Renee Geyer, "Gotta Lotta" by Lauren Wood, "It's The Falling In Love" by Carol Baker Sayer, "Crazy" by Valerie Carter, "Isn't It Something" by Franne Golde, "Opening Up To You" by Laura Allen, "Temptation" by Leah Kunkel, "Disco Tech" by Carole King, "Dance The Night Away" by Doris Abrahams, and "Take Me With You" by Lyn Christopher.

VariousLes Annes Saravah – 1967 to 2002 ... CD
Saravah/Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 60s/Early 70s/Late 90s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 29.99
A beautiful tribute to the legendary French label Saravah – founded by songwriter Pierre Barouh with his royalties from the worldwide hit "A Man & A Woman" – then run for decades as a model of recording innovation and collaborative creativity! The sound of Saravah is incredibly hard to peg – and we mean that in the best way possible – as the label completely exploded older style of French chanson with experimental work from new talents in the 60s and 70s – then brought in strands of avant jazz, bossa nova, global rhythms, and even some folksy currents too – but all with this very creative, genre-crossing mode that's still without compare all these many years later! The label is best known for its famous records with singer Brigitte Fontaine – who makes an appearance here, but in the company of so many of Saravah's other overlooked talents – in a collection that looks at the early flourishing of recordings in the late 60s and early 70s, then moves into work from the great revival years of the label from the mid 90s onward. This package features notes in both English and French, and includes a lot of Saravah gems we haven't seen reissued elsewhere – titles that include "J'Attendrai" by Fred Poulet, "Maman" by Oscar Castro & Anna Vallejo, "Photo" by Bia, "Afrika Obota" by Pierre Akendengue, "Coeur De Rubis" by Francoise Kucheida, "Signaletique" by Areski & Jacques Higelin, "Le Temps D'Une Vie" by Pierre Barouh & Anna Vallejo, "Femme Parmi Les Femmes" by Francoise Hardy, "La Valse De L'Oubli" by Carole Laure, "Dans Ma Rue" by Areski, "Comme A La Radio" by Brigitte Fontaine, "Tiens J'Ai Dit Tiens" by Jacques Higelin, "Je Hais Le Gosses" by Allain Leprest, and "1962" by Gerard Ansaloni.

VariousWayfaring Strangers – Ladies From The Canyon ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
A sweet collection of early 70s female post folk revival material – independent and long lost recordings from unknowns that used folk and psychedelia as offerings to each singer's idiosyncratic muse – and another incredible collection of deeply sought rare tunes from the Numero Group! Numero really blows us away with their ability to seek out and lovingly reissue lost recordings – and package them in beautiful and insightful collections – and this one is as impressive as anything they've done to date. It features singer songwriters from sleepy midwestern Illinois and Minnesota, to the enlightened, heightened Bay, and points between and beyond – with songs from records originally pressed in runs of 500 to 5000. The thick booklet includes a page of notes for each artist in the collection, really rich stuff with photos, original single/album art, etc. The music is warm, groovy and sincere as can be, much of it surprisingly timeless! 14 tracks in all: "A Special Path" by Becky Severson, "Cricket" by Collie Ryan, "Sunlight Shadow" by Linda Rich, "Engram" by Caroline Peyton, "And I A Fairytale Lady" by Carla Sciaky, "Window" by Judy Kelly, "Dedication" by Mary Perrin, "Rain" by Marj Snyder, "Wildman" by Ginny Reilly, and a cover of the Stones/Marianne Faithful treasure "Sister Morphine" by Ellen Warshaw.
